Canon EOS-50D rumored specifications

Canon EOS-50D

It’s rumor time once again! Photography forums are abuzz with what is rumored to be a replacement for the Canon EOS-40D, named the Canon EOS-50D. Of course rumors like this should be taken with a grain of salt, especially when originating from popular forums known with a wide range of users. But here’s the specs anyway:

  • 12.2 Megapixel APS-C sensor
  • Single Digic III Processor
  • ISO 100-3200 (High 6400)
  • 6-8 fps depending on grip
  • 3″ High Resolution OLED LCD
  • Will accept EF and EF-S Lenses
  • 11 point AF
  • 35 Zone metering
  • Viewfinder: 100 percent coverage .95 magnification
  • Pop up flash
  • New Lithium Ion Battery
  • Weather sealing slightly better than 40D

With these rumored details, I don’t think it’s as exciting as it deserves to be. When considering the 40D and similarly–positioned cameras from Nikon like the D300 (and maybe the D700), this news bit better be false or Canon will continue losing market share.
